Does Your Industry Require Cut-Resistant Sleeves?

by Robert Gheesling on August 24, 2016

The short answer: If you work in an industry where cut risks are present you need sleeves! Cut-resistant sleeves pick up where your gloves stop.

Choose the sleeve’s length, thickness and flexibility based on the application’s demands. Thanks to the options available on the market, there’s a correct sleeve for your workplace.

does your industry require cut resistant sleeves?

Any job where you routinely come into contact with sharp hazards means your arms are at risk. You can think of sleeves as a trusty sidekick to cut-resistant gloves. They give you the coverage and protection you need in the workplace.

Here are some of the industries where cut-resistant sleeves are an absolute must:


1. Metal Stamping, Glass Plants, and Sharp-Edge Objects:

When your job involves handling glass, stamped metal, or any other type of sharp-edged object, cuts are a constant concern. The is an excellent choice SLKW: Superior® Protective Kevlar® Sleeves. Thanks to the high-performing Kevlar® featured in both the wrist and forearm areas, these sleeves offer reliable cut resistance and comfort — all in one product.

Why They’re Great:

  • Knit cuff fits snugly at the wrist, and the sleeve body is looser
  • ANSI level A2 cut protection
  • Available in both 7- and 8-inch lengths

2. Metal Handling, Automotive, Metal Fabrication, and Glass Handling:

Looking for sleeves designed specifically for the forearm area? Our SLNM7V: Ballistic Nylon Mesh Sleeves with Velcro® Closures stay put, and never sag or bunch up. They’re tough, and they’re different from pull-on sleeves.


Why They’re Great

  • Nylon mesh is semi-rigid for all day protection
  • ANSI Level A2  cut protection
  • Cool and breathable for all day comfort

Thanks to their Velcro® closures, these 9-inch sleeves are easy to take on and off. And, if you need abrasion protection, they could be your next favorite sleeves.


3. Welding and the Oil and Gas Industries:

When it comes to staying safe on the job, sometimes cut resistance is only part of the concern. In both the Welding and Oil and Gas industries, you also need reliable protection against burns. Our K1T2E22TH: Contender™ Aramid Cut-Resistant Composite-Knit Sleeves with STAYz-UP™ Armbands were born to fill that role.


Why They’re Great

  • Outer layer of Aramid-encased filament-fiber yarn
  • ANSI Level A2 cut protection
  • STAYz-UP™  armband technology
